Mrs. A. N. Pigott
Welcome to Class 2-2 Room 15
Welcome to Class 2-2 where learning is fun. My name is A.N. Pigott. I am so excited to start another year at School 17. I am asking for your cooperation to make this a successful and happy year for your child. I am looking forward to a year filled with meaningful experiences and rewarding academic successes. In my class, the students will be engaged daily with the 2nd grade curriculum along with the state standards.
I am certified to teach grades K-6. Presently, I am a second grade teacher. Before that, I taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. Teaching has always been a passion for me. I have a love for learning and I hope that my students also learn to love learning.
I will assign homework every day. Remember, homework is a great way to establish routines, to reinforce responsibilities, and to review the lessons introduced in class. I strongly believe in the value positive support plays in motivating children to develop good work and study habits. I feel that parents are the key to make school a positive experience for their children.
In addition, please have your child read every night for at least 30 minutes and discuss what they have read. Children cannot learn to read if they don't practice. Remember as a parent you are an important part of their educational success as I am. We have to help lay the foundation for them to become life long learners.
Please help your child study their spelling words, work on math skills, review skills they are learning in class, practice the skills on sumdog, talk about current events, the weather, etc. Last but not least, please check your child's red homework folder daily.
Open communication is important so please don't hesitate to email, call the school, or classdojo me. Classdojo is the easiest way to get in touch. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Phone # 914-376-8345.
Again thank you for your cooperation.
Mrs. A. Pigott
